Inevitable Crimes of Passion - 4160Tuesdays

Inevitable Crimes of Passion is the perfume of a Henry James novel. It's not one specific book, but as every one of his stories involves at least one young innocent rich American being seduced by one or more older, impoverished, charming shameless Europeans, it’s the scent of outrageous seduction.

It starts with an invitation into the orangery, then to the parlour for cake and coffee, into the drawing room for cognac, then into the cellar never to be seen again.

The use of mushroom absolute in Inevitable Crimes of Passion creates a very unique effect that enhances the feeling of being in a dank cellar full of discarded, tattered velvet furniture, while also cranking up the volume on patchouli’s fantastic earthiness.
